Sacramento Roof Repair Tips: Coping with Construction

A lot of homeowners often hesitate to get their roofs fixed, not only because of the expenses it entails but due to the inconvenience such a venture would bring. After all, construction would mean disturbances in your daily schedule – especially for big repair projects. If you are thinking about postponing your roof repair project again, just think about it this way: You only need to endure construction for one to two weeks, at most, but your roof problems could worsen and leave your home with damage that will take months to fix.

A few repairs can get your roof in good condition enough to last a few years or so. Here are a few tips on coping with roof construction:

  • Set rules early. Talk to your contractor about rules you want implemented during the construction. If you don’t like anyone smoking, say so. If you would prefer that they only use the bathroom by the kitchen for answering nature’s calls or for washing up, say so. Setting rules up ahead of time means reduced stress and friction between you and the roofers during construction.
  • Brief your housemates. Brief family members about the project. This way, they’ll know what to expect and you won’t be confronted by stress on both sides. Tell them about the work hours so they can adjust accordingly. For example, if a family member works nights and needs to be asleep during the day, arrangements could be made. Roof work can start later, or the shift worker can change shifts during the construction period.
